Introducing Watson Moments in IBM Cognos Analytics

By Jason Tavoularis posted Mon April 05, 2021 06:13 PM


Watson Moments are exceptional AI implementations highlighted with Watson branding to emphasize how AI automation helps users make smarter business decisions faster.

In IBM Cognos Analytics 11.2.0 you may encounter a Watson Moment through a natural language enquiry to the AI Assistant about a particular field in your data. If the AI detects there's a comparable field in the same data source - a "Planned" or "Target" matching to the actual you asked about - the Assistant will automate a visualization that allows you to see how they are performing relative to each other.  Here's what it looks like.

The IBM Watson branding helps resonate how something significant has been automated by the AI.

Expect more Watson Moments to emerge in new versions throughout the Cognos Analytics 11.2.x series!
